Introduction
Please read the following before sending an inquiry: My minimum for a private event in the NYC Metro area is $1250. Generally, this comes out to about $400/hour. Thank you! Grant’s unique performances as a One Man Band have made him one of the most sought-after event musicians in the Eastern United States. As a “live looping” artist playing over 500 songs from all genres, Grant thrives at a wide variety of events (over 130 per year), including private parties, corporate galas, concerts and weddings. Since all musical elements are created live, and no backing tracks are used, no two performances are ever exactly the same. HuffPost called him one of “5 Must-See Indie Summer Concerts in NYC.” He travels internationally. Clients have included Dior, Audi North America, The New York Yacht Club, Time Out New York, and Hudson Yards, and countless lovely couples and individuals!

Grant came to our home for a party of about 25. He arrived on time and with an assistant to help him “swiftly” set up. He performed his first set with wonderful background music to the cocktails and food. Thought the night he played songs we requested, many just as good as the original. He was welcoming to have guests join him “on stage,” and very open to requests, even figuring some out on the spot. Throughout the evening everyone was dancing and singing along. I would recommend him for your next event without hesitation.

Details: Birthday party • 25 guests or fewer • 51 or older • Guitar • Vocals • No preference • Rock / classic rock • Other

I found Grant online and he really lives up to his reviews, as well as his sound! He was an excellent addition to our wedding reception, and I heard nothing but rave reviews all night. He truly is a one-man band with a big brass sound. In addition to his standard repertoire, I requested 2 specialty songs for the first dances, as well as a PA Polka bridal dance tradition, and he really came through. If you are looking for live music, I cannot recommend Grant enough. His punctuation on response and arrival, overall sound and professionalism, and quality of service is outstanding. I promise you the only thing you'll be disappointed with is not booking him faster!

Hire Grant! We had Grant play at our wedding and pull together 3 other very talented musicians to form the perfect band for the day. Grant was really easy and smooth to work with, funny, kind and tailored songs, format and setting exactly how we wanted it to be. Grant exceeded our expectations and we would definitely hire him again if we had the chance. A true professional and a pleasure start to finish.
